"...Consider that a perfect televisual approximation of the ex-Austin duo's swirl of bubblegum beat-punk and Sixties girl group sensibilities. Imagine the Shangri-Las remade by Burger Records..."
"...Danny Barnes, revered punk rock banjo player for Nineties locals the Bad Livers, loves cassettes. From his now longtime home in Seattle, he gets downright evangelical about his Minner Bucket Records putting out "handmade experimental music" on cassette..."
"...Jones; rappers Snoop Dogg, Al Kapone, Frayser Boy, P-Nut, and Big Baby; blues vets Charlie Musselwhite and Bobby Rush; and roots rockers the North Mississippi Allstars (whose Cody Dickinson is one of the film's producers), plus ex-Talking Head Jerry Harrison. Hi Rhythm, the fabled studio players who grooved the likes of Al Green and Ann Peebles, serve as the house band and Stax Records co-owner Al Bell hosts..."
"...Don't get confused, young hipster! This isn't a showcase for cassette-centric California label Burger Records, which presents its third annual Burgermania on these same stages Saturday.

"...As with most things Hotel Vegas, "ambitious" is Good Vibrations' byword: 29 acts, three stages, one night. The patio stage boasts the most starpower, including the Bad Lovers, hairy, bluesy, bubble-gummy darlings of Hotel Vegas booker Ben Tipton's Burger City Rock N Roll label; Norton Records' sinister garage-blues trio from NYC, Daddy Long Legs; Tipton's own lo-fi sub-Ramones threesome, Pleasers; the trashy, nihilistic surf-bashing of Portland, Oregon's Guantanamo Baywatch; and ratty, Burger Records-style garage pop by Oakland's Justin Champlin performing in a rotting rabbit mask as Nobunny..."
